'If you want to see the sunshine, you have to weather the storm.' ~ Frank Lane

I love the above quote because it speaks to me personally on many levels, especially in the past year.
I can also relate it to our recent storms and rain this Summer. Thankfully today has been sunny and beautiful.
I took these today at one of the community gardens in Madison.

I was just reading in my Stream in the Desert devotional about how important waiting under the clouds of trials is - because they will ultimately produce showers of blessings.

Thanks for reminding me of the importance of the storms, Gail.

Lindy longs to see sunflowers and I hope we'll be able to see a field of them someday. For now, I will show her your beautiful pictures.
